Have you heard the story of the jelly beans?
Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of our Father's love
That's just for me and you.
is for the new spring grass.
is for the sun above.
is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.
for the robe he wore,
is for that precious wine.
is for the sins He washed
From your soul and mine.
for the sadness of
HIS friends and family,
andis for the glory of the Day
HE rose for you and me.
Now that you've heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father's love
As told by jelly beans.
So when you see jelly beans on this Easter season,
stop and remember,
